Colorsphere is a contemporary circus performance for children and families.
It is a show about exploration and transformation, about discovering a whole new world and letting it shape you. The characters of the performance are in constant interaction with objects that come alive through play. The core of the show is based around interactions with two modified tennis ball launching machines that shoot balls at speeds of up to 80 km/h. These ball machines become lively, playful and sometimes stubborn creatures in the world of Colorsphere. We intend to take every child and adult along with us on a spherical and whimsical adventure into discovering color for the first time.
